The 0.45 lambda vertical with short radial

The simulation results of a 0.45 lambda vertical with a single, short radial of 0.06 lambda, are shown. Antenna is made of copper wire, diameter 1.5mm. Lowest point of antenna is 2 meters over real ground. Antenna was modeled with MMANA-GAL basic.

0.45 vertical

 

Antenna impedance at 14.2 MHz is almost purely resistive, about 900 ohms.

Radiation diagram is omnidirectional, with vertical lobes having maximum radiation angle of 17.6 degrees.
